Problems with your air conditioning system can make your Chattanooga, Tennessee, home hot and uncomfortable. AC issues can also reduce your indoor air quality and worsen health problems like allergies and asthma. You should have an experienced professional look at your AC system at least once each year. That way, you can make prompt repairs to prevent damage. Common air conditioning problems include refrigerant leaks, poor airflow, and a broken thermostat.

Refrigerant Leaks

In the air conditioning process, refrigerant moves heat from your home and helps to return cool air. If there is a refrigerant leak, your air conditioner will have to run longer to maintain desired temperatures and will use more energy. The refrigerant is harmful to the environment and can cause health problems. If you notice a strange smell or wet spots near your indoor or outdoor unit, call us right away.

Poor Airflow

If your HVAC system’s airflow is low, it will be difficult to keep rooms cool. Poor airflow can also affect your indoor air quality and increase wear on your air conditioner. You should change your system’s air filter at least every three months to help facilitate clean and easy airflow. Make sure your outdoor unit has a few feet of free space above it and on all sides. Keep your air registers open and move furniture and rugs that block vents.

A Broken Thermostat

Components in your thermostat can short circuit or fail over time. If the thermostat is not working properly, you might find it harder to regulate indoor temperatures. Frequent on or off cycling is also possible, and this inefficient operation will increase wear and tear on the system and also result in higher energy bills. Contact us for quick repairs or a new thermostat installation.
